Originally called the Dallas Texans, the club was founded by Lamar Hunt in 1960 as a charter member of the American Football League. The team moved to Kansas City and became the Chiefs in 1963 after then-Kansas City mayor H. Roe Bartle guaranteed the team they would have increased ticket sales. The Chiefs then joined the NFL as part of the AFL-NFL Merger.

AFL

In 1959 Lamar Hunt, son of oil tycoon H.L. Hunt, began discussions with other businessmen to establish an American football league that would rival the National Football League. The new league was called the American Football League, and Hunt established it after being denied ownership of an NFL franchise. Hunt established his AFL team in Dallas, Texas. The Dallas Texans, as they were known then, shared the Cotton Bowl with the NFL's cross-town competition, the Dallas Cowboys. In one of the Texans' biggest games, they defeated the Houston Oilers in a dramatic 1962 AFL Championship that went into double overtime. Until the December 25, 1971, playoff game between the Chiefs and Dolphins, the game was the longest ever played at over 77 minutes. Lamar Hunt (August 2, 1932 – December 13, 2006) was a promoter of American football, soccer, tennis, basketball, and ice hockey in the United States and an inductee of the first three sports halls of fame. ...

After three seasons, including an AFL championshipin 1962, it became apparent that Dallas couldn't support two teams. Hunt decided to investigated opportunities to move his team to a different city for the 1963 season, wanting to find a city to which he could commute easily from Dallas. Persuaded by H. Roe Bartle, the then mayor of Kansas City, Hunt eventually moved the team to the midwest.[2] Harold Roe Bennett Strudevant Bartle (June 25, 1901 - May 9, 1974) // General Description Using the word legend may be an understatement when talking about Harold Roe Bennett Sturdevant Bartle. ...

Most impressive about this move was the support the team received from the community even before the team announced the move. Hunt made the move dependent upon the ability of Kansas City Mayor H. Roe Bartle and the Kansas City community to guarantee him 35,000 in season ticket sales.

Hunt, with a roster replete with players who had played college football in Texas, wanted to maintain a lineage to the team’s roots and wanted to call the club the "Kansas City Texans". However, the team was renamed the Kansas City Chiefs, one of the most popular suggestions Hunt received in the contest, along with "Kansas City Mules", and began playing in Kansas City’s Municipal Stadium in 1963.[2] Kansas City Municipal Stadium was a baseball and football stadium that formerly stood in Kansas City, Missouri. ...


The franchise became the flagship team of the American Football League, with the most playoff appearances for an AFL team (tied with Oakland), the most AFL Championships (3), and the most Super Bowl appearances, playing in the first Super Bowl, and in the last to be played between League champions. The Chiefs dropped the first Super Bowl to the Packers, then went on to beat the Vikings in the final AFL-NFL World Championship game after the AFL's last season in 1969. They had just one coach throughout their AFL history, Hall-of-Famer Hank Stram.

The Chiefs' first Kansas City home was located at 22nd and Brooklyn, called Municipal Stadium, which opened in 1923 and seated 49,002 people. In 1972, the Chiefs moved into the new Arrowhead Stadium. Municipal Stadium, also formerly the home of the Kansas City Royals, the minor-league Kansas City Blues and, most successfully, the Negro Leagues' Kansas City Monarchs, was demolished in 1976 and is now a community garden. The Chiefs' first game at Arrowhead Stadium was against the St. Louis Cardinals, a game which the Chiefs won 24-14.

Arrowhead Stadium is half of the Truman Sports Complex, along with Kauffman Stadium (formerly Royals Stadium). Kansas City was viewed as taking an unnecessary risk at the time by building two stadiums instead of the popular multi-use stadiums being built in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, and St. Louis. However, with demolition of St. Louis's Busch Stadium in 2005, the Truman Sports Complex has now outlived all of the multi-use stadiums built in the same era. While many have applauded the Kansas City decision makers for this decision, the move was not quite by design. When it became readily apparent the Municipal Stadium was not adequate for the Chiefs, the decision was made to build a multi-use stadium for the Chiefs and Charlie Finley's Kansas City A's. Finley, however, proved to be too difficult to work with, demanding a "baseball stadium that could also be used for football" or a baseball only stadium, instead of the other way around.

After much vitriol behind the scenes, Finley decided to move the team to Oakland. However, the discussion made Bartle and his advisors convinced that one stadium would be good but not great. Thus, the decision was made to build two separate stadiums after Finley left town. Coincidentally, Finley moved to Oakland's Alameda County Coliseum, a multi-use stadium in which the A's have played since moving there in 1967. For other uses, see Coliseum. ...

They earned revenge three years later, upsetting the over-rated Minnesota Vikings 23-7. The team's victory has been considered the "proof" that the American Football League's (Jets) win the previous year was "no fluke". With the Chiefs as enormous underdogs going into the game, they cemented a future merger for the AFL and NFL. The Chiefs dominated on all sides of the ball in Super Bowl IV, both defense and offense. They wore a Ten-Year AFL patch in contrast to the Vikings' "50-NFL" patch, and according to player comments, were greatly inspired by it. Ironically, the merged leagues did not retain the name and logo of the AFL.

With a high powered offense and blistering defense, Hank Stram's innovative play-calling would revolutionize the game. Stram would utilize audibles and line changes that would confuse opponents on the field, giving the Chiefs the advantage. The Chiefs would go on to win 43 games between 1966 and 1969. Five Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinees played for the Chiefs in the era: quarterback Len Dawson, linebackers Bobby Bell and Willie Lanier, defensive tackle Buck Buchanan and placekicker Jan Stenerud.

NFL

1990s

In 1989, Carl Peterson became the team's new president and general manager. Peterson hired Marty Schottenheimer as the team's coach. Schottenheimer led the team to six straight playoff appearances, three AFC West championships, nine winning seasons, and 76 consecutive soldout games at Arrowhead in the 1990s. Schottenheimer's impressive 101-58-1 regular season record (.634) made the Chiefs the winningest team (by percentage) of the 1990s. The Chiefs re-established a strong fan base, and Arrowhead Stadium quickly began to sell out every home game, a streak still alive nearly 20 years later.

The Chiefs' popularity rose in the 1990s with their "college football game atmosphere", a traditions still alive today. Much of the "college atmosphere" has arrived due to the popularity of local Big 12 college football games, often held at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs used a "Big 12" formula in rebuilding their team with players from the local universities throughout the nineties, such as Neil Smith and Will Shields, both from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The team also had superstars in the early 1990s such as Derrick Thomas, Christian "The Nigerian Nightmare" Okoye, Dale Carter, and Deron Cherry. Categories: College athletics conferences ...

The Chiefs 1990 season was their first return to the playoffs in 5 years and marked the best team they had fielded since the 1970's, finishing 11-5. Led by Steve DeBerg, Christian Okoye, Barry Word, and a ferocious defense, the Chiefs won a wild card berth but subsequently lost to Miami 17-16 in the first round of the playoffs. Steven L.

1991 saw much of the same faces and results, this time a 10-6 finish and another wild card berth and a trip to the playoffs. On the strength of their defense, the Chiefs defeated the Raiders in the first round of the playoffs 9-7 before losing to Buffalo in the divisional playoff round.


After acquiring veteran quarterback Dave Krieg for the 1992 season with similar results to the previous years (wild card berth, 17-0 loss to San Diego in round 1), the Chiefs traded for Joe Montana from the San Francisco 49ers prior to the 1993 season. Along with Marcus Allen from the Los Angeles Raiders, the Chiefs gained both a powerful passer and rusher to assist their powerful defense, advancing to the AFC Championship Game.

In 1997, Schottenheimer chose to start newly acquired Elvis Grbac as quarterback to begin the season, with long time journeyman Rich Gannon serving as the primary backup. After a season opening loss to Denver, Grbac led the Chiefs to wins in 7 of their next 8 games before being injured in a home win against Pittsburgh. Gannon took over in the 4th quarter against the Steelers, and was dreadful in his next three starts filling in for Grbac (1 TD, 4 INTs, QB rating of 55.3), though the Chiefs did manage to win 2 of those 3 games (by a combined margin of 7 points). His next two starts, against a good 49ers team and an awful Oakland team, the Chiefs won both games -- by a combined score of 74-9. Gannon played well, throwing 4 touchdown passes and only 1 interception in those two games. However, despite a 29-7 win in the next game against San Diego, Gannon again played poorly, completing only 8 of 29 passes for 116 yards (61 QB rating). Grbac returned in the final week of the season, and in the snow and freezing rain of a dreadful Kansas City winter day, the Grbac was not on target but the Chiefs defense was, giving them the division title and a 13-3 record. With a healthy Grbac on board for their divisional playoff game against Denver, both defenses were stellar and Denver won a hotly contested contest 14-10.


The choice to play Grbac over Gannon still remains controversial in the minds of fans, though a clearer look at the numbers and performances of the two quarterbacks should make it a moot point (and it was Gannon's later performance at the beginning of the 1998 season and in Oakland that really caused this controversy). Grbac was the leader of the team and was brought in prior to the season to be the #1 starter. While Gannon did lead the Chiefs to a 5-1 record as a fill in, his numbers and play were strikingly similar to one Brodie Croyle, the Chiefs 2007 part time starting quarterback.

For numerous years up through the 2005 season, after every Chiefs touchdown, the crowd would chant "We're gonna beat the hell outta you...you...you, you, you, you", over Gary Glitter's "Rock and Roll Part 2."

"Red" by Sammy Hagar came in second in voting, and "Elevation" by U2 finished third. Though to satisfy fans not willing to lose a tradition, in the first game of the 2006 NFL season, a cover rendition of "Rock and Roll Part 2" performed by the Tube Tops 2000 was played, complete with the "We're gonna..." chant.

Mascots

The mascot during the team's glory years at Municipal Stadium and until 1989 was the beautiful pinto horse named Warpaint. During its heyday, the first Warpaint (born 1955) was ridden bareback by rider Bob Johnson who wore full Indian headdress. Warpaint circled the field at the beginning of the game and then did a victory "dance" at each touchdown. The Chiefs are reportedly considering bringing Warpaint back[16] in the near future.
